Relive P. Diddy’s White Parties of yesteryear in this 6,000-square-foot, four-bedroom behemoth. You’ll be on Little Peconic Bay, not the ocean, but no matter—the house has loads of swagger. Own a yacht? Perfect: Skip the traffic and arrive by boat. (You can drop anchor next to the house, but you’ll need a dinghy to get ashore, as there is no dock.) The amenities here are plenty: 500-thread-count sheets, a wine fridge stocked with Dom, a private beach, and access to tennis courts that you share with a few neighbors. Double-height windows in the living room frame dramatic views of the East End sky. Spend your days splashing in the bay-abutting, 40-foot-long swimming pool or lounging in the covered cabana. A private chef can be arranged upon request, but Southampton’s toniest eateries—like the Plaza Café (61 Hill St.; 631-283-9323) and Sant Ambroeus (30 Main St.; 631-283-1233)—are minutes away.
